Software Addresses Sexting and Cyberbullying Concerns by Giving Parents Visibility into Children’s Texts and Photos, Websites Visited, Location and Time Spent on Mobile Phones.

In its continuing efforts to keep children safe on their computers and mobile devices, SpectorSoft® Corporation, the worldwide leader in PC, Mac, laptop, Internet, mobile monitoring and analysis software, today announced the release of eBlaster® Mobile for Android™, a new product to allow parents to remotely monitor activity that takes place on their child’s phone.

eBlaster Mobile for Android -- available for purchase at www.SpectorSoft.com -- works with devices running Android OS V1.5 or later, and records a child’s text activity, call logs, physical location, Web history and photos taken with the phone’s camera. eBlaster Mobile for Android is the newest addition to the eBlaster® line, which includes eBlaster Mobile for BlackBerry®, eBlaster for Windows® and eBlaster for Mac®.

Parents can now use eBlaster Mobile for Android to remotely monitor the activities conducted on their child’s Android phone. All recordings are organized into an easy-to-read Activity Report that is automatically sent to the e-mail address of the parent’s choice as frequently as they wish. With eBlaster Mobile for Android, parents can be notified of the following:

  • Text Message Activity – Know What They Text
    Record transcripts of a child’s text message conversations, including every word that was typed on both sides of that conversation. Parents will receive immediate notification of text messages, even if that message is deleted from the phone.
  • Voice Call Logs – Know Who They Talk To
    Log all calls a child makes and receives, including call duration. Learn to whom they are talking, at what times, and for how long.
  • Physical Location of the Phone – Know Where They Are
    Receive reports of the physical location of the phone, in relation to the nearest cell phone tower, as often as every 30 minutes.
  • Web History – Know the Websites They Visit
    Review the address of every website visited. Find out if children are visiting inappropriate websites and how frequently they are visited.
  • Camera Phone Photos – Know What Pictures They Take
    Receive copies of all photos a child takes with their Android phone and know if they are using the camera feature inappropriately.

eBlaster Mobile for Android Activity Reports are delivered directly to a chosen e-mail address, based on parental configuration, as often as every 30 minutes or as infrequently as once a day. A powerful Instant Notification feature delivers immediate transcripts of all messages sent and received, as well as photos taken with the mobile phone camera.

eBlaster Mobile for Android settings can be changed easily and remotely via a Web interface, eliminating the need to gain physical access to the phone to change configuration or notification settings.

"eBlaster Mobile should be used by parents to give visibility and instant notification of their children’s mobile communications and physical phone location,” said Ira Victor, Director of Forensics and Compliance with Data Clone Labs, and advisor to the Nevada State Legislature on cybercrime and privacy.
